Director Jay Russell wanted a smooth haired fox terrier to play Skip, the same breed as the original Skip, but he wasn't able to find trained ones. Early in pre-production, he used a dog with no acting experience for a shoot of second unit type footage and quickly found difficulty in doing even basic things, like keeping the dog in the frame. He concluded they needed dogs trained in acting, so similar looking Jack Russell terriers were used (at 07:00 in the director's commentary).
